So is the online gamestop tracker for the "New" collector's edition a reliable way to track one down or is it totally random whether or not a store has it?


It's a good indicator of which stores HAD it in stock new, but whether it is still available is extremely YMMV. It could be:

a. Yes, it's still there and complete
b. Yes, it's still there but on hold for someone else
c. No, somebody already bought it today (I don't think their inventory system updates until the next morning)
d. No, they already gutted or sold it without changing their "NEW" inventory count

Just got the only copy of AC3 LE around me for 50 miles. It is a PS3 version and I got it for $40.49 after PUR. The 20% coupon did not work on it.

I asked at my local GameStop and the manager pulled a mint copy from the stock room. It rang up for $49.99 ($44.99 after discount). I was pretty happy getting it as cheap as I did.

Was able to snag 2 of these in SoCal, and the :360: version is ringing up at $44.99 base, not $49.99 like the used version is listed online (as the pic of another CAG's receipt above also seems to illustrate). So just an FYI, there doesn't appear to be a price difference between the two versions in-store.

Usually I can scrounge one of these up when they get converted. I got Uncharted 3, Infamous 2, Max Payne 3, SW: ToR, etc.... No go with this one, nothing within a 100 mile radius and every Gamestop I called stated that it's "Not even in our system anymore". :(

No luck in the Atlanta area :( Too many people saying that "Sold out" or "If we had them converted, we can't sell them as a bundle anymore", which I know isn't true because I worked for GS for over two years :/ I guess it wasn't meant to be...

I was very lucky with this. Yesterday I was running around to all the GameStop's in my area to do some trade in's. Didn't even know about them being converted till I saw it on the back counter with the pre-owned sticker on it for $49.99. I had a small heart attack when I realized I could use the 20% off pre-owned coupons I had in my pocket. Also as I was purchasing that the employee mentioned he had another one sitting in the back room. I promptly purchased that one as well and walked out with two limited editions for $36.99 each. Good day indeed.

Was able to reserve one :360: copy yesterday, picked up today. Still sealed, but I got the 3rd degree from the clerk ... "why did you reserve this? How did you hear it was converted?" Told him it was on a website, LOL.

Haha! He was probably mad because he had his eye on it.

Edit: not sure if this is happening for anyone else, but it seems we can't use the stock locator to find these anymore. Gonna make it a little tougher now.

Thank you so much OP and contributors. I called 4 of the bigger Gamestop stores in my area with no luck. Usually I find good deals like this or penny guides at these stores, but they all said "it's impossible to find one of these now" or "I think those were preorder only, but I'll check."

I was running errands and stopped by a smaller gamestop to get a .99 cent MAG and .99 cent America's Kitchen DS, and they had a xbox 360 Assassins Creed III CE hidden in one of the cabinets. I used the birthday coupon and Powerup card to buy it for only $35.99. It has the $49.99 preowned price tag one of the employees put on yesterday.

The outer box wasn't sealed at all, but all the stuff inside is still sealed. Is this how everyone's CE is? Maybe because the manufacturer had to put that "gamestop exclusive uber DLC preorder" edition of the game inside.
